Hello, I am very worried. I have never taken birth control before and about 2 months ago (April) I took next choice, I had the basic spotting and bloating and didnt get my period that month. The first week of the following month (May) I spotted on the day of my expected period for 2 days. Then about 2 weeks later I got a heavy period. Going into the following month (June) I spotted for 2 days again, a week after my previous period. Now almost 3 weeks later i still have not gotton my period. It is almost the end of the month. My boyfriend and I have not had sex after I took the emergency contraceptives the first time. Is this normal?

Hi Anon,

Sorry to hear that Next Choice has interrupted your cycle. It is normal for next choice to cause some spotting and irregular bleeding for the first month after taking it, but your period should be back to normal by now. The first thing I would do is take a pregnancy test to make sure you're not pregnant-- and then schedule an appointment with your doctor to see if he can give you something that will induce your period and get you back to normal.

Keep us posted,

Hey, thank you so much for answering my question. I went to the doctor yesterday and I'm not pregnant. She told me that the spotting in June was a light period. I also told her that I was getting all the symptoms of an up and coming period in the middle of June and she told me I was probably gonna get it in early July. Well she was definitely right, the next day, July 1, I woke up and got my period :) .
